Jamie Crossman, Manager of Individual Giving at HFOT had this to say regarding our efforts in 2020:
"Happy Holidays! I hope this note finds you well. Thank you so much for all of your ongoing efforts to Homes For Our Troops. As 2020 comes to a close, we are excited to report that despite the pandemic 23 Veterans and their families received the keys to their forever homes, thanks to your efforts. We have also just completed our bi-annual Veterans Survey to see how they are rebuilding their lives since moving in to their specially adapted custom home. Each month in 2021 I will be sharing these results along with my message of thanks. For now here is one we are extremely impressed with: Because Veterans are now safe and able to be independent in their homes, the employment rate for their spouses/caregivers increased by 285%! This wouldn't be possible without your generosity. Please accept our extreme gratitude for your efforts! "
